A profile of new Cavalier Donald Sloan from a few months back- “Those 38 games of “running the show” were enough to get Sloan invited to training camp to play for the USA in the 2011 Pan-American Games. Of the players competing in Mexico, several were D-Leaguers who were sitting well in terms of making of NBA team, with Sloan being one of them. We’ll go in depth on the Pan-Am Games in another Chasin’ The Dream, but Sloan made enough of an impression by his play in Mexico that the Erie Bayhawks made him a priority on draft night, dealing vet Blake Ahearn and a second rounder to bring him to Erie.
“It’s all about confidence. Once my agent, Brian Elfus of Impact Sports Basketball, told me that I had teams coming to see me in Tulsa, following me down to Mexico, then put me on the ...

Of course this happens the day I write about not losing faith in him.
According to Nick Camino of WTAM, Brantley was unexpectedly pulled from today’s Spring Training game against the Dodgers in the third inning.
Ryan Spilbourghs on deck. Not sure why? He is taking Michael Brantley’s spot in the lineup. #Indians
Just watched #Indians OF Michael Brantley leave Goodyear...
Mike Holmgren told me everything I need to know about the Washington Redskins trade-up for the Rams' slot in the 2012 NFL Draft.
Why else would the president of the Cleveland Browns have to explain to season ticket holders that he lost the bid to trade up for the rights to Robert Griffin III?
"I'm not going to tell you exactly what we offered, but I will say what we...
The Cleveland Browns released journeyman offensive lineman Tony Pashos last week, who had been oft-injured during his two-year stint with the Browns. Pashos was a steady fixture, when healthy, on the right side of the offensive line.
The real surprise, after not being able to reach a contract re-negotiation agreement, was the release of Eric Steinbach, the starting left guard...
Any lasting dreams of having Matt Flynn come to the Browns should have been dashed days ago. But just in case you had a little bit of hope left, today you can let it go completely.
Adam Schefter reports that Matt Flynn has agreed to a 3-year deal for $26 million with $10 million guaranteed.
So stop wondering if Matt Flynn is “the answer” for the Browns. If he is a good quarterback...
Outfielder Ezequiel Carrera and four others were sent to the minor leagues by the Cleveland Indians on Sunday.
Carrera, right-hander Corey Kluber and infielder Juan Diaz were optioned to Triple-A Columbus. Catcher Michel Hernandez and right-hander Hector Ambriz, who missed the entire 2011 season recovering from elbow-ligament replacement surgery, were reassigned to the minor-league...
The Indians have placed oft-injured center fielder Grady Sizemore on the 60-day disabled list and finalized their roster for Opening Day.
Sizemore, who underwent back surgery last month, will not be eligible to come off the DL until June 3. He has been in Cleveland doing his rehab. General manager Chris Antonetti said the three-time All-Star has been working on his stability and...
As the world continues to be hyper about “what have you done for me lately,” fantasy baseball owners rejoice. It’s nice when your opponents look at 2011′s stats and think they are gospel because then guys who had bad years last year fall through the cracks. Even better if the guys between the cracks are in the form of hard throwing 200-K capable pitchers with great names...
Gambling site Bovada lists the Cleveland Browns as the fifth-most likely landing spot for the recently replaced Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow, given 12/1 odds.
Following the news surrounding Peyton Manning heading to Mile High, the displaced Tim Tebow becomes the subsequent storyline following his playoff run with the Broncos. The Browns slot behind the Jacksonville Jaguars...
I don’t know if it would make some people happier if I just claimed that the Browns aren’t trying to win. I won’t do it. Despite Chuck Booms claiming Randy Lerner wants to wash out the fan base so he can move the team to London (Yes, he really said that this morning and if he was joking it wasn’t even half way) I am not one who thinks this front office is just in it for a...
Everyone in the baseball universe has essentially said the same thing about the chances for the Indians to compete with the Detroit Tigers for the AL Central crown. They will not be able to hang unless Ubaldo Jimenez finds his old form and pitches like the the top of the rotation starter that Chris Antonetti thought he was getting last summer. Not that anyone has forgotten, but the...
With NFL free agency continuing on, the fallout from quarterback Peyton Manning’s pending decision could reportedly land veteran play-caller Matt Hasselbeck in Cleveland as a member of the Orange and Brown.
Per Sports Illustrated’s Peter King, if Manning opts to return to Tennessee, this time as a professional, an uprooted Hasselbeck could be the next Jake Delhomme.

The Cleveland Indians have been patiently waiting as Ubaldo Jimenez the pitcher the Indians traded away two future prospects to acquire the big right hander to get. Since coming to the Indians Jimenez has been struggling to say the least. Jimenez got the start against the Reds yesterday in Cactus League play. The Reds gave Jimenez a difficult time as the...
Ubaldo Jimenez gave up six runs in less than four innings, including a long leadoff homer by Brandon Phillips, and the Cincinnati Reds beat the Cleveland Indians 9-2 Saturday.
Phillips drove the fifth pitch of the game out of the ballpark and into the Arizona desert. The shot far beyond the left-field fence was tracked down by a youngster in a stretch of sand near a roadway.
